The kitchen redefines the traditional paradigm of function versus form by creating two distinct instances where one can prevail over the other. At a first glance, this kitchen strikes for its inherent sculptural simplicity and its monolithic look: a precious surface made in Corian (or marble) seemingly inadequate for prepping elaborate meals, can be lifted through the innovative Wing Top mechanism designed by Nero Cucine to uncover a stainless steel countertop featuring a working area with a welded sink and a retractable faucet. When the countertop is closed the monolithic island exists as a sculptural piece. When raised and recessed it becomes a highly functional workspace. For its versatility it is an ideal solution for an aesthete who likes to entertain and appreciates an elevated culinary experience assisted by technological innovations, but also for a high-end commercial space like an art gallery, a showroom or a high executive’s office.
The main feature of the N037 kitchen (“Wing Top”) is a dynamic countertop: a proprietary mechanism which allows users to comfortably raise a ½” thick solid Corian or marble top to cook on an underlying surface and a backsplash in stainless steel without worrying about staining the precious material on the exposed side. The top can be lifted up manually with great ease and locks in place even if only partially raised. The Wing Top mechanism is completely concealed and it is operated manually, which ensures smooth operability and durability over time. Once the top is fully up, forming a 90 degree angle with the under surface, it turns de facto into a backsplash equipped with a sensor LED light pointed on the cooking counte.
Exposed “wing” top in solid surface, marble or quartzite. Under top in stainless steel with built-to-measure basin. Retractable faucet. Innovative structure in tubular stainless steel. Soft closing top of the line Legrabox metal or walnut dovetail drawers and elegant black hinges. Internal LED lights.
The kitchen has an innovative tubular stainless steel structure that ensures lightness, greater sustainability, harmony of the interior spaces and diffused light, as well as shorter production times. Drawers can be in metal or dovetail solid wood. This model is equipped with internal LED lights that confer dynamism and bring it to life. While the use of exclusive materials on the exterior radiates an exquisite aesthetic, the tubular stainless steel used on the internal structure adds timeless charm, lightness and tactile pleasure.
N037’s main features is the original “Wing Top” proprietary mechanism developed by our team of designers and engineers. The mechanism is capable of lifting a 10 feet long solid surface or stone countertop. The countertop stays in place even when it is raised just partially.
